    Sq subwoofer help!!

    Hey everyone, I've been trying to get a setup put together for purely sq. The subs that have so far caught my eye are the jbl mkii, idmax, ssa icon, idq, and some subs from the dayton series. Which of these would you recommend for sq? Also has anyone heard these subs and could give me and feedback? Or would anyone recommend any other subs for sq? I want the subs to be able to get loud, and hit the low notes very well. Thanks

    whats your budget?
    For sq you want transparency to be the top priority, it shouldn't even sound like you have a subwoofer. If that's not what you want then your not looking for sq.



    I am protesting Skar by giving them added exposure in my signature.

    Then you dont want purely SQ. You want something that sounds good with some output. SQ subs dont get to loud or hit low notes that good. You will have minimal excursion to keep cone control.

    13W6 will be the "loudest" SQ sub I can think of. They dont need much power to have decent output. If you want to give up a bit of SQ your options open up.

    Its up to you and what you want. I dont think the FI Q sounds all that great. Its not bad but NOT a SQ sub. Its in line with many subs, build the enclosure right and tune it right and it will sound good. The JL can be thrown in a junk Prefab and still sound good. Put it in the right box and its pretty **** nice. Audison and Hertz have some NICE stuff but your going to pay for it.

    IMO the 13 is where its at with the W6 and 7. Everyother size was disapointing in the output department
